That was several hours ago......
My long-arm machine has been languishing in the back room, for way to long, since I have a tendency to get so involved in QAYG projects. I've been wanting to play a little more on the long-arm, without committing to a full quilt. I have done full sized quilts but am really just wanting to experiment a bit.
So out came the books...
One of the books mentioned quilting smaller pieces such as wall hangings on the long arm.
That got me thinking.
I dusted off the machine.....
Cut some batting the same width as the fabric...gotta love that pool table, for jobs like this.
I put a little basting spray on a square of fabric...all ready to play. The backing fabric and batting are 45" wide so I could even play with some small type baby quilts with out having to reload the frame.
I was in a pretty good frame of mind, pardon the pun, until I turned the machine on....TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES.
SEVERAL HOURS LATER.....I think I need an EXPERT and and CHOCOLATE, lots of chocolate!!!!
